One tournament into his return was all Tiger Woods needed to strike a deal with Bridgestone to play its golf ball.Bridgestone Golf said Thursday it has signed Woods to a multi-year agreement in which he will play and promote the golf ball. Woods effectively became a free agent for equipment deals when Nike decided to stop making clubs and golf balls and instead focus on apparel.Bridgestone becomes the first new equipment company that Woods has endorsed since he turned pro 20 years ago. He signed with Titleist (equipment) and Nike (footwear and clothing) in 1996, and his switch to all Nike equipment began with its golf ball in May 2000.Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Woods had not played in 15 months while recovering from back surgeries, though he still draws more attention and spikes media ratings more than any other player.Woods had been testing equipment the last few months after Nike said it was getting out of the hard goods golf business. He used the Bridgestone ball at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, and said the golf ball was the critical component of any equipment change.Woods tied for 15th against an 18-man field in the Bahamas, though he was hitting a greater variety of shots than when he had last played on the PGA Tour.The 14-time major champion tends to play a golf ball that spins more than most, and Woods said the Bridgestone B333-S was hands-down the best for my game.The ball is reacting identical with how I want to play, he said in a release announcing the deal. For me, thats fun.As part of the deal, Woods will be considered a Bridgestone ambassador and be featured in all advertising.Woods also was using a TaylorMade driver and fairway metal in the Bahamas, and he said he put his old Scotty Cameron putter back in the bag right after Nike announced it was out of the club business. He was still using the Nike irons and said in the Bahamas he planned more testing after the tournament.He has not announced his schedule for next year except for the Feb. 16-19 Genesis Open at Riviera, where he hasnt been since 2006. His foundation now runs the tournament.By choosing a new golf ball, Woods went a different direction from two of Nikes highest-ranked players. Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka said they have asked Nike to set aside as many golf balls as possible.I have about two to three years worth, Koepka said in the Bahamas.McIlroy, who plans extensive equipment testing in Dubai at the end of the month, said changing golf balls would be the most difficult adjustment.I need something that works, and right now the Nike golf ball works ... with everything in my bag, which is perfect, McIlroy said in late October.Woods took the first step with the Bridgestone golf ball. He joins a group of players that include Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Fred Couples Air Max 97 Off White

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- After five straight losing seasons, coach Jeff Monken and Army bid farewell to Michie Stadium Saturday hoping for a big finish.Back over .500? Check. Still alive for a bowl? Check.Beat Navy for the first time since 2001?Well see in three weeks.Before all that, the Black Knights had to take care of Morgan State -- and they had little trouble doing so. Andy Davidson ran for two touchdowns on 111 yards, Cole Macek added two more scores and 108 yards and Army crushed the Bears 60-3. Darnell Woolfolk added a score on 104 yards to keep the Black Knights (6-5) in the hunt for their first bowl game since 2010, thanks to their largest margin of victory since 1958.But first comes Navy.I dont know a bigger football game, said Monken. Thats a goal of ours as a program, to play in the postseason. Itd be great to have that opportunity, but we have no control over getting in right now. We have one game in the world right now and thats the Army-Navy game.Armys triple option, which stalled badly in a 44-6 loss to Notre Dame a week ago, returned to form against an FCS defense that came in allowing 32 points per game. The Black Knights scored on their first two drives and led 29-3 by halftime.The nations No. 2 rushing offense wound up with 504 yards, 561 total yards, as Army clinched its second six-win season since 1996.Chris Andrews (8 for 20) threw for 79 yards for the Bears (2-8, 2-5 MEAC), who converted just three of 16 third downs. Morgan State, which hasnt won a road game since October 2015, failed to score a touchdown for the second time this year and was held to 124 yards of offense.Armys defense clamped down on Morgan States opening drive, forcing a three-and-out, and the Black Knights scored on their ensuing possession, capped by Davidsons 23-yard score.After forcing another punt, the Black Knights got into the red zone on Woolfolks 42-yard rush to the 5. Ahmad Bradshaw ran in on a keeper one play later and the Black Knights led 13-0.Stymied on the ground, the overmatched Bears caught a break in the second quarter when they recovered an Army fumble on one of their five first--half punts.dddddddddddd That set up a drive from the Army 19, but Morgan State had to settle for a field goal for its only score.Armys 249 yards of offense in the first half bested its entire effort in the loss to Notre Dame. A big chunk of that came on Jordan Asberrys first carry. The sophomore took a pitch from Bradshaw at midfield, got to the right sideline and then picked up a block to score with 2:45 left in the half. The Black Knights got another touchdown two minutes later when Bradshaw found streaking Edgar Poe for a 31-yard score.Army, the nations 10th-best defense, racked up six sacks and senior Jeremy Timpf had 10 tackles in his 35th straight start.Theres been a lot of work put into this program the last few years, Timpf said. A lot of sweat and blood has been poured on the field.THE TAKEAWAYMorgan State: The freefall under first-year interim head coach Fred Farrier continued for the Bears, losers of six straight. The result wasnt nearly as close as the programs first meeting, a 28-12 Army victory in 2013.Army: Coming off lopsided losses to Air Force and Notre Dame, the matchup with Morgan State on senior day was a must-win as Army tries to qualify for a bowl. Army is holding its breath since its victory against another FCS foe, Lafayette, doesnt count toward that goal.TRIBUTE TO 28In addition to a new tattoo, Morgan State freshman Rico Kennedy wore No. 28 to honor his best friend, Armys Brandon Jackson, who died in car crash earlier this season. I miss him, I love him, and Im always going to play for him, Kennedy said.UP NEXT:Morgan State: The Bears are at Savannah State on Saturday in a game postponed by Hurricane Matthew back on Oct. 8.Army: The Black Knights are off until Dec. 10s trip to Baltimore to face Navy. Army hasnt won the rivalry game since 2001. After the game, Poe was ready to focus on the Midshipmen.Were tired of hearing, `Is this the year? Thats the most annoying thing I get asked every day. Im ready for it to just happen, he said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
